Counter clockwise on a whirlpool kenmore. Clockwise on on all others. Just a guess.
Ain't really paid that much attention to it but I was thinking the whirlpool  blower is mounted to the rear of the machine and all the other blowers mount from the front. confused yet? :D I just looked up your blower wheel and it is Clockwise so I am going to say your drum turns clockwise.

I have only ever seen a dryer drum turn one way, the correct way.

Don't really know off the top of my head if that is clockwise or counter clockwise, sorry.

What kind of problem are you having with your dryer.
